My mother often had this mix on hand when I was growing up. Now I make this hot cocoa for my kids on cold and rainy mornings. It's cheaper than store-bought mixes and even more delicious.

"Most diffently. It reminds me of the coco mix my mom made for us on Christmas Eve. My brother was sick from birth and he looked forward to his Hot chocolate. My mom lost the recipe and I looked everywhere for one that tasted as good. This hit the spot now I will carry on the tradition since I found this recipe. Thank you. It brought back wonderful memories of my died brother how he enjoyed his hot coco.
